A CLASSROOM assistant joined a Bridgwater weight loss club ... and has now taken up kick boxing.

Sue Clist, of Old Taunton Road, who joined Slimming World in January 2011, said: “My consultant Dawn Booth introduced me to Body Magic early on in my journey. She encouraged me that exercise would benefit me on the way.

“So I thought ‘why not?’ and decided to try kick boxing. Now I’m hooked. I’ve actually got to fighting fitness and had my first fight in June. I can’t wait for the next one.”

Sue, 33, has dropped from a size 18 to a 10/12 and still enjoys a full roast dinner with her family, just cooked differently.

Slimming World in Bridgwater meets at 3.30pm on Mondays at Bridgwater Community Church – for details call Dawn Booth on 01823-330721.
